Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT605) is ways to use Umbrellas. It reminded me of this Wedding Shower card I made a while back & totally forgot to post!  double-umbrella-happiness-06183
I stamped the little love birds, greeting & umbrellas & colored them w/ Copics. I also did a third umbrella on a separate piece to cut out & pop up on top of the love birds. After dry embossing the panel, I thought it still looked a little empty in areas so I took out a black Micron pen & doodled the vines/flowers in the opposite corners then added a Candi dot to the upper left.

Here are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast (FS485) so a big Congrats is in order to Sarah, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a wonderful, growing gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the umbrella & plaid bg, but I used different paper, different images & added a couple more layers.

After die cutting the layers, tags & Wishing word out of the different papers, I stamped the rest of the greeting on some aqua & die cut it. I added a dk orange umbrella a little down to show under the edge of the coral umbrella, A smiley face was stamped on the coral umbrella & I went over it w/ a black glaze pen. Like Sarah, I added some sequins to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside.

This is my second week as a Guest Designer for the Splitcoast Color Challenge & for this challenge (CC578), the colors are olive, eggplant & Bermuda Bay (a blue/green). I admit, I was a little leery of using the eggplant w/ the other two, but I think it worked out ok in the end.

To make my rainy card, I first made 2 water color backgrounds..the narrow blue/green one and a larger one w/ all 3 of the colors to use for the umbrellas. After brushing water over the narrow panel, I mixed blue & green Brusho powders on an old CD with a wet paintbrush then drug the paintbrush across the top edge of the panel & held it upright to let the color run down. I let it dry a bit, then added a few darker drips & some splatters. For the other panel, I mixed the colors of Brushos on the CD & painted them in separate areas on the panel. When both panels were dry, I splattered then w/ water then quickly dipped them in UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) & heat embossed. I had do this in small areas at a time in order for the UTEE to stick & the water puddles not to soak in.

After die cutting the umbrellas & narrow panel (I used a rectangular piercing die & did one side at a time), I stamped the half sun where I knew the panel would end then realized that the yellow I was going to color it wasn’t in the challenge so I stamped it again on a leftover piece of the w/c bg & paper pieced it. I attached the narrow panel, put it in my Misti & stamped the greeting on both & added the umbrellas. The 3rd umbrella I trimmed off the handle & just let the Y be its handle.

Here’s a look at the inside.
